Even before the Nets moved from New Jersey it's been all about "Brooklyn". First they stopped using the "New Jersey" jerseys, and now they've dropped the "Nets" all together.
I understand the marketing standpoint, and the importance of appealing to the local potential fans. And I don't want to sound like a spoiled fan calling for new jerseys not even a year into having new everything.. But I would love some alternate jerseys with "NETS" across the front!
Our marketing staff absolutely killed the move to Brooklyn. It seems like a vast majority of those potential fans are now fans. Don't get me wrong, I love our uniforms and the miscellaneous gear. I'm from Utah but I gladly rep "Brooklyn" harrrrd! I just think we've succeeded in getting the point across. So it wouldn't kill us to let off the "Brooklyn" throttle a little bit and have a set of uniforms that represent not just the present and future, but also the past.
